Community in-Bloom

Community in-Bloom in the Heartlands is an exciting collaboration between HDB, NParks, and Residents' Committees (RCs), which aims to promote greening and strengthen community bonding through gardening.
 
Besides actively setting aside plots in the precincts for community gardening, HDB also works with the RCs and NParks in the setting up and growing of community gardens.

In addition, we link up the community gardeners with neighbouring schools and hold educational tours for students to these gardens. The benefits are two-way. While these tours allow students to learn more about the different types of plants and flowers, the gardeners also picked up greening knowledge from the students.

Some schools like Xinmin Primary School have even adopted a community garden and help to co-manage them, together with the residents. From April to July 2016, Primary 4 students from Xinmin Primary School got some hands-on in gardening, under the guidance of the resident gardeners at the Wo Wu Yuan Community Garden during the “I Love my Community Garden” Learning Trips.
